Collard Greens

Everyone prepares their collard greens differently, and calories will vary based on whether you add meat to the pot. Generally, a cup of collard greens is only 11 calories, so this is the healthiest food on the menu. It is high in vitamin A, which helps you maintain healthy skin and teeth. If you’re going to go for seconds, this is your best bet. Burning time: a brisk 7 minute walk.
